Brera 2.4 JTDM

squeaky brakes and suspension squeak on 08 brera???

hi guys, my car is an 08 registered 2.4 jtdm brera, just turned 15k miles old and will be racking up around 40k a year for the next 3 years. I noticed a squeak on the brakes just after christmas and the car has been back to mangoletsi in knutsford twice and the problem still persists, just wondered if anyone has had similar issues and whether they have managed to rectify? cheers

I get the odd squeek too just now and then not too bad, I was going to try some copper-slip between the pad and piston, but havn't got round to it.
I may wait and try some Performance friction pads in the longrun.

Pad and pistonS - there are 4 in each caliper on these.

Never had a squeak out of mine - might just be dust,

Re: squeaky brakes and suspension squeak on 08 brera???

I've had really squeaky front brakes for the last 18,000 miles. It's driving me mad. The car has been back to AMC in Chelmsford three times!! They denied there was a problem at the last service so I insisted they checked it again. They acknowledged the problem at the MOT and insisted they'd fixed it Tuesday just gone. They say they deglazed the pads and put some of that copper-slip on but it has had no effect. I'm so sick of it that I've preliminary ordered my new 5 series for September! It has totally ruined my experience. My final attempt at resolution will be to email Alfa UK and ask for the pads and discs to be replaced. If they say no then I'll confirm my BMW order.

My car is an 06 so nearly out of warranty but you should seek replacement as yours is only an 08.

Trust me the problem only gets worse. Sorry to sound negative as the car is absolutely brilliant but the dealer customer service just does not go far enough.
